My husband and I are taking a vacation to Washington DC at the beginning of August with my in-laws. I have been doing some research but I feel very confused with everything. The bus, metro and all the museums and places to visit. We will be staying in Springfield, VA. How the heck do we navigate the public transportation? What do we need to make sure we to while visiting? We will have 6 days to do everything and we only have 1 day planned so far (Arlington National Cemetery). Any DC ladies that can give me some tips?
Where we are from the only bus we have ever road is the school bus and that was years ago :)
